I contacted Edelina to help me plan my daughter's wedding ceremony on short notice. Edelina was prompt to return my correspondence, answer all my questions and met with us in person to discuss our vision. Since we did not have a rehearsal prior to the wedding, Edelina organized a quick run through when we got to the Chapel, first with the bridal party, then with the groom and groomsman. We had a very tight timeline and Edelina's organization and direction kept us on task from beginning to end. The wedding was incredible, better than I could have imagined. I highly recommend Edelina and her services as a wedding planner.
Angie of Honey Do Wedding and Event Planners was one of the best decisions we made throughout our wedding planning process. She was affordable (especially for a student and military wedding) but always made us feel like her number one clients. Not only was she a great value, but she went over and above what we were expecting. We hired her to be our day of coordinator, but we met with her on a regular basis and she always responded to all calls, texts, and emails. Angie is incredibly personable, knowledgeable, and has connections with various other wedding vendors. As a same sex couple, she never treated us any differently than an opposite-sex couple, and she actually was great at recognizing the subtle differences that come with having two brides. At our first meeting at a potential venue, Angie came prepared with examples of her work and binder with all of our info. She even printed out new forms that said bride and bride instead of bride and groom. These small but significant touches are what make Angie stand out among other wedding planners. She helped us negotiate with vendors to get better prices and confirmed all vendors the week of, lifting a lot of the stress off of our shoulders. We can't speak highly enough of Angie and the Honey Do family!
The entire ALD team is incredible! Communication, professionalism, decorating...all of it. Impeccable. They did a fantastic job for my Grandmother’s 90th birthday party. It was beautiful. Not only did April do exactly what we asked but she anticipated any other need we might have and was prepared for that as well. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. I have already given the information out to quite a few people. ALD is definitely where it’s at!
I hired Denean's Party by Design as my day-of coordinator for the ceremony (I had on-site coordinators for the reception site). This meant they would speak with the necessary vendors, do minor setup and takedown, come to the rehearsal, assist with the timing of the music, and guide us down the aisle. Overall, I am so glad that I decided to hire a day-of-coordinator and pleased with the service I received from Denean and her team. She was also very affordable!! We did not have a musician, but opted to use a CD player in the back of the chapel instead. This would be complicated to arrange ourselves, and was a major area of concern. I downloaded all of the music and burned the Cds, then they timed the playing of the pre-ceremony, processional, and post-ceremony music and it was perfectly done, as was the timing of my bridal party and making sure everything was in place. An area of improvement: Part of my agreement was that they would assist in breakdown, which they absolutely did, but it was my understanding that they would help carry and load these items into my parents car. Instead, they asked me if I needed anything else, but I was too busy and focused on other things to know. I wished they had asked my mom instead. So naturally, they left without helping my parents, who had to carry all of the flowers and other items, which were being transported to the reception, to their car. This is only a minor disappointment and I would recommend this vendor to future brides.
Jacqueline coordinated my daughter's wedding which took place on Jan. 2nd She handled a very large bridal party with professionalism, poise, and even prayer. Very attentive to detail, especially timetable. Regularly available by phone and email. Provided excellent consulting w/regard to etiquette, also able to come up w/backup plans as needed. Very personal and good experience.
I had the distinct pleasure of working with the incomparable Michele Palmer (and her dynamic team) for my recent wedding in October 2016. I hired Michele and her team to help with month-of wedding coordination. Initially, I thought I only needed someone to help set up the venue on the day of the wedding and handle week-of phone calls with the other vendors to make sure that everyone was on board and had the correct details. However, as this was my first time planning a wedding, and despite my tendency to be an extremely organized person, there were so many little things that Michele and her team took care of that I hadn’t even expected or anticipated and that helped my wedding go off without a hitch. I would ABSOLUTELY hire Michele and her team again, for any event I host, and merrily pay whatever price to secure her services. In chronological order, and among other kudos for things that I am sure happened behind the scenes and of which I am unaware, I can credit Michele and her team with: -Coordinating the walkthrough at the venue with the caterer, myself, and her team (which happened more than a month prior to the wedding) -Working with the unusually inflexible venue to book a real band, get the band in for training, and arrange for the band to be there with ample time to set up and take down their equipment -Working with the venue to design a floor plan and timeline that the venue was able to understand (despite their perpetually baffled reactions to things from cabaret-style seating to the timing of cocktail hour) -Arranging two rendezvous with myself and my husband (prior to and after the wedding) to meet halfway and transfer LOTS of wedding “stuff” from one vehicle to another. (NEW BRIDES: this is SUPER IMPORTANT because it allowed all of our wedding guests and ourselves to leave the venue at the end of the evening without having to wait around for any handmade decorations, gifts, etc. to be collected and transported into someone’s car. It was the #1 thing that made us feel like we could celebrate on the day rather than be the hosts.) -Chunking last-minute detail information for me, such as deciding on linens, and communicating that information to the caterer (including number of each type of linen for each specific type of table in the venue) -Making useful suggestions that enhanced the wedding experience for the guests (pintuck linens instead of plain, three lanterns on the tables rather than one so they wouldn’t get lost) -Exchanging seemingly hundreds of text messages to answer my last-minute questions and attend to last-minute requests for things such as changing out an escort card when one of the guests broke up with his date two days before the wedding -Arranging for 29 sets of fairy lights for our lanterns, checking the batteries for each one, and stuffing them into the lanterns (saving me from a seriously tedious task) -Being prepared to handle any number of high-maintenance relatives, including knowing their names and where they would be seated -Handling guests that showed up to the venue 75 minutes early (!!!) when the venue was not ready to receive them -Checking in with myself and my husband multiple times throughout the evening to make sure we were OK and had everything we needed (food, drink, a moment to collect ourselves) -Working hand-in-glove with the caterer to accommodate our unusual ceremony (of unknown duration) -Helping me to bustle my dress quickly and efficiently with little direction (CRUCIAL when you don’t have someone at your final fitting and simply need someone to bustle the dress who has bustling experience) -Tearing it up on the drums as a guest drummer for the live band for a song or two -Checking in after the wedding to arrange any and all wrapping-up details PS: Michele can totally hook you up with lanterns and make your tables look SUPER romantic! See attached photo. :-)
Mary is the perfect wedding coordinator. She is very genuine and very in tune to every detail. My wedding day was stress free because she managed 180 guests and my entire bridal party along with other vendors. She was sensitive to the time and she provided agendas at each meeting. She went the distance at my wedding and truely sacrificed to be at meetings including the wedding rehearsal. I couldn't have ask for anyone better. She was humble, engaged actively, and made decisions for the better. She even provided additional details that could make my ceromony more romantic and meaningful. She ensured everything was in its place for ceromony reception, cocktail reception, and wedding reception. She was everything more than a coordinator and fulfilled my hearts desire. I love her and she has the right heart. She gives back in the lives she connected by celebrating others victories. I'm grateful that I found her she was an answer to a prayer.
Bianca, from a A Beyoutiful Fete, planned my bridal shower. She was hired by my maid of honor and it was amazing how she pulled everything together at such short notice. The pink, ivory, and gold theme décor she put together was elegant and on point! I wish she could have planned my wedding. She truly went above and beyond for my bridal shower and every one was amazed. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family. She is so sweet and a pleasure to work with.
Where to begin? At first I was extremely against hiring a day of coordinator as I was convinced I did not need one. I was EXTREMELY wrong! I could now not imagine my wedding without Trina and her team. Trina is extremely organized, easy to communicate with, and thought of details that I would’ve have overlooked but ended up being so important the day of. Trina offered advice, helped me to make decisions, and used her wealth of knowledge to help me visualize that I wanted my wedding to look like. There was not a question that Trina did not know the answer to. Trina and her team were fantastic. Before the wedding she triple checked everything with me and my husband, called and confirmed with all of my vendors, and communicated with other important members of our bridal party about their role. During our rehearsal she clearly communicated expectations for the day of with all of my very large bridal party and helped everyone feel comfortable with their role in the wedding. Everyone was complimenting her and her team’s efforts throughout the night. She and her team were always one step ahead of any potential problems or disasters, intercepted any issues so that I did have to deal with them, and paid close attention to detail. The best part of working with Trina was that I was able to have a worry free evening with my guests and was able to enjoy my wedding. I knew that Trina had everything handled. One of the many reasons why my husband and I decided to hire Trina over other vendors that we interviewed was because of her professionalism, knowledge, and experience. Trina and her team worked tirelessly throughout the day to ensure that everything went according to plan. She and her team were constantly present during the night to ensure that we were calm and comfortable, communicate with other vendors, guests, and me to ensure that our day went as planned. She set up the reception space beautifully and wrangled my guests (and groomsmen) to where they were expected to be throughout the day so that we could stick to our proposed timeline. Trina was there to reassure me, hide me and my bridesmaids away from the groomsmen and groom, ensure that our ceremony music and order ran smoothly, and even made sure that the train on my dress was picture perfect before I walked down the aisle. At the end of the night Trina and her team had everything packed away and stored for us to easily transport home. My husband and I were dreading the clean-up process by Trina already had it handled. I cannot communicate how thankful I am that I decided to work with such a wonderful day of coordinator and her team. If you are on the fence or unsure of whether you need a day or coordinator or wedding planner in general, just do it! Trina and her team are phenomenal are our day was seamless because of her and her team’s effort. We would hire her and her team again in a heartbeat and heartily recommend them to anyone in the need of a coordinator. Thank you so much!
Little Black Book Events did a wonderful job planning my bridal shower and bachelorette party. I really felt that Vanessa listened to and heard what I did and didn't want and designed parties that were perfect for me. It was elegant, classy, and fun. All of the guests had a wonderful time. I would absolutely use Little Black Book Events to plan a party in the future!
From the first consultation with Keisha I knew she was a perfect fit for us! Affinity One Events were hired for my day of wedding day coordination, but it was a lot of communication and meetings before the actual day. Keisha was flexible and very reliable. Several of my guests noticed how helpful and professional affinity one event staff members were during the wedding. I could not be more thankful for the service that was provided!
K.Chic Events did our family reunion which was incredible and in the making for a year! KISHA kept all family members abreast to what was going on since a lot of the family lived out of town! Kisha even went out of her way to handle lounging for some of the family. That was a major plus.The food,decorations,DJ was absolutely fabulous!! Kisha even had a few surprises for us (the family) with shirts with every member name on it,celebrating my mothers' birthday, plus my 40th wedding anniversary! Kisha professionalism was incredible! I will certaintly be using her services again! Thank you K.Chic Events (Kisha) for making our reunion a memorable celebration. Mrs.O
We were the photographer for a wedding that Creative Design Consultants was the wedding planner for. Creative Design Consultants did a fantastic job! They were our liaison with the bride and groom and answered every question that we had. All responses came fast and any questions we had were answered completely and professionally. The professionalism was outstanding! Creative Design Consultants was a pleasure to work with. I would encourage anyone needing a top wedding or event planner to contact Creative Design Consultants! You will be very happy that you did!
It was the most memorable and beautiful bridal shower ever. I was so impressed by every single detail. She truly delivered, need I say more? She's extremely talented and has such a creative vision. This was everything that I wanted! I would highly recommend her to my family and friends.
Tee Tee's Southern Taste decorated and cooked for my sisters bridal shower and not only did the venue look amazing the food was delicious! Everyone kept talking about how good everything was.
Definitely a pleasure to work with. I did my first bridal show in September of 2014. Michelle is great to work with!!
I loved working with Sharon and Concept Consulting. She was a true professional, had amazing and creative ideas and she was super personable and friendly. She has a natural ability to make things happen. She's a pro when it comes to luxury events, decoration, catering, and creating the perfect vibe. Concept Consulting is my go-to for events and I look forward to using them again and again in the future.
Planned the wedding of my dreams!
